HB BARRY STRASBOURG-THOMPSON BFA STUDIO & ART INSTRUCTION

​​Thanks for your interest in my Fine Art classes. I am a full time working fine artist with a BFA from Visual Arts, University of Ottawa. My family and I have been teaching and creating and exhibiting Fine Art for 7 generations. I would be happy to guide you through a Fine Art program and teach you how to create with an Artist's Voice of your very own.


Yes I teach 4 classes per week ON LINE (and in person when CoVid 19 restrictions allow).
I teach in person and on line classes simultaneously. These classes are delivered on line by ZOOM and are recorded so that if you have an appointment at class time or want to review the class within the following 30 days..you can play back the recording. 


CURRENTLY in BC...If you are age 21 or younger you may attend IN PERSON in my Friday "Art With Barry" class 4 to 7pm at Studio 104 in St. Josephs Art Studio Building. 9735 Elm Street in Chemainus BC (next to the Ball Park).
If you are over 21 you can attend class Tuesday or Thursday or Saturday mornings from 9am to 12 noon On Line. When the restrictions are lifted you can begin to attend in person. Please choose the weekday that suits you best. There are 4 three hour classes per month (12 hours) plus homework assignments. Classes are small to ensure personal attention. I teach from Beginner level to MOMA level art courses. Fees are $100.00 per month..art classes are tax exempt. I expect you to purchase a used copy of an Art Education text that I recommend..usually between $25 and $50 dollars on Amazon. 


I invoice you by the Square invoicing system. You can pay me online by credit card or directly by e-transfer to Hbarryst@gmail.com.

I have a large student following and can only accomodate students who are serious about learning to paint. Please send me a very brief outline of your painting interest and any previous courses that you have had. Beginning level is fine if you are committed to learning to paint.


An art practice is one of the greatest and most rewarding ways to self care in life. My course intends to increase your sense of pleasure and of being more alive.


 Looking forward to your next great life adventure. Please let me know when you would like to discuss your art practice. I can be reached at 250 210 2237 or at Hbarryst@gmail.com or use the CONTACT US link above.
